FBI Releases Bank Crime & Robbery Stats for Q1 2011


There were 1,092 reported violations of the Federal Bank Robbery and Incidental Crimes Statue during the first quarter of 2011, a decrease from the 1,183 reported violations in the same quarter of 2010.

There were 1,081 robberies, nine burglaries, two larcenies, and one extortion of financial institutions reported between Jan. 1, 2011, and March 31, 2011.

Highlights of the report:
Loot was taken in 88 percent of the incidents, totaling more than $7.5 million.
Of the loot taken, 20 percent of it was recovered -- more than $1.7 million was recovered and returned to financial institutions.
Bank crimes most frequently occurred on Friday, most frequently between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.
Acts of violence were committed in 4 percent of the incidents, resulting in 24 injuries, three deaths and 18 persons taken hostage.
Demand notes were the most common modus operandi used, closely followed by oral demands.
Most violations occurred in the Western region of the U.S., with 353 reported incidents.

Not all bank crimes are reported to the FBI, and therefore the report is not a complete statistical compilation of all bank crimes that occurred in the U.S.
